“This is the promise He Himself made to us: eternal life. These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you, As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him" (1 John 2:25-29).

Great and gracious Father, “Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and give strength to all” (1 Chronicles 29:11-12, ESV). Indeed, words will not suffice to thank You for all that You did for us in the month of January 2021.
Lord, You provided “life and breath and all things” (Acts 17:25) for us. Father, You preserved us. God, You protected us from dangers, seen and unseen. Holy Father, You partnered with us in Your divine work of sharing Your good news. Gracious Lord, You put up with us. You picked us up when we fell and failed You. You pulled us out of our despair in January 2021 when things were going from bad to worse politically, economically and socially.
Now, in Your lovingkindness and favor, You have brought us into a new month, February 2021. We heartily and humbly admit to You that it’s all because of Your goodness and grace that we are blessed to see the first day of the second month of the New Year of 2021. Many who started the New Year with us are no longer with us.
But we are still here. It’s not because we are better than them. No! Not at all! It’s all because of Your unceasing, unchanging, undying, and unending love for us. Furthermore, it’s because we have not lived out the full number of the days You have ordained for us even before we were born (Psalm 139:16).
O righteous Father, You are the all-knowing God. You have infinite knowledge and understanding of all things. You already know the cares and concerns, the challenges and crisis; that will visit us in this month of February 2021. But You also have already prepared the counsel and comfort we will need in such times.
Not only that, Your compassion will be ready to meet us as You work through all these circumstances in our lives to change and conform us more into the blessed likeness of our Lord Jesus Christ. Indeed, “Who is like You among the gods, O LORD? Who is like You, majestic in holiness, awesome in praises, working wonders?” (Exodus 15:11).
Because of who You are and what You do for us out of the kindness of Your good and gracious heart, we specifically and sincerely dedicate the new month of February 2021 to You, in the holy and hallowed name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Loving and Living Lord of the universe, please accomplish all that concerns our families, our friends and fellow-believers, and us; Israel – Your chosen nation, Your Church – Your called-out people, and Your world – consisting of all the nations and the lands You created under the heavens – for the praise of Your blessed name.
We humbly and honestly confess to You that we desperately need You and Your gracious work on our behalf every single day of February 2021. Please shepherd us. Strengthen us. Sustain us. Save us from ourselves and from our spiritual enemies and their attacks on us. Speak to us and set us on the path of righteousness. Seek us when we go astray from the path of righteousness, for our hearts are prone to wander from the God we love. Show us things in the spiritual realm for us to set our mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth (Colossians 3:2).
Heavenly Father, be our shield, our shelter, our stronghold, our strong tower, our security, our stay, our support, our salvation, and our sanctification. Be our sure defense and deliverer. Be our singular focus in this month when the world celebrates Valentine’s Day. Enable us by Your Holy Spirit to reflect and radiate Your love to the world. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
Holy Father, we love You, because You first loved us (1 John 4:19). We lean on You to do for us what seems good in Your sight. We long for You to accomplish what concerns us. We look to You alone to be our sure hope and help throughout this new month of February 2021. We leave all that concerns our souls in Your caring and compassionate hands; believing that You are “able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20). It is in Jesus’ name, “the name which is above every name,” (Philippians 2:9) that we pray. Amen.
What role should men of God be playing in the Church of God in such a time as this? Since the beginning of the Church on the Day of Pentecost, the Church was made up of believing men and believing women. Peter played a prominent role in the witness of the early Church. The sons of Thunder, James and John and the other apostles also played a significant role in the growth of the Church primarily on the continent of Asia. Along came Paul, who played a major role in the advance of the gospel of Jesus Christ on the continents of Asia and Europe. Men of God in all successive generations of the Church had played their role in making her relevant and reputable. It is now the turn of men of God in the Church of God today to play their role in her progress. What role should they be playing in such a time as this? Please find out here.
Although, some may deny it, yet the fact remains that we live in a broken, evil and fallen world. The feeling of insecurity among individuals and nations is at an all-time high. The Covid-19 pandemic that is wreaking havoc in our world has made matters even worse for many. Since it is human nature to feel secure and protected, we seek protection in all kinds of places. Some seek protection from the latest technological monitoring devices. Others look to the departed spirits of loved ones to offer them protection and security in this world. Others put all their trust in their idols for their protection. Still others trust in their own abilities to protect themselves. These look to human strength for their security. But sadly, all these ways of seeking protection and security, have failed people again and again. So the question is: where can we find protection that is sure and secure in this life and in the life soon to come? Please find out here.
The Global Coronavirus Pandemic!
Our world is literally under attack. The global Coronavirus pandemic has brought our world to its knees. Millions have contracted the dreaded COVID-19 virus. Thousands upon thousands have lost their lives after contracting the virus. The future looks bleak for the world. But in the midst of this global pandemic, it is important for believers in Christ to keep reminding themselves that:
- God is our Go-To-Person;
- God is good all the time;
- God is gracious;
- God is great and greatly to be praised;
- God is our guide;
- God is our guard;
- God is our guardian;
- God Himself is our guarantee;
- God is the generous giver who gives life and takes it away. Blessed be His name!
For those who have lost loved ones in the global Coronavirus pandemic, we grieve with you. Our sincere prayer for you is that the Father of mercies, the God of all comfort, will Himself comfort you so that you will be able to comfort others in their trials and losses. [I have personally lost a beloved nephew to the virus in the UK]. We also thank God for those who have been treated and have recovered from the Coronavirus and trust you will be touched with the goodness and grace of God to you. [I also have another nephew who is recovering from the virus in the UK]. We also pray for God's hand of protection on the first responders across the globe. And we pray that even in such a time as this, "this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come" (Matthew 24:14).
What is the gospel? What is its source? Who is the subject of the gospel? What is the success of the gospel message? Is its success in building mega-churches to hold thousands of church-goers? Is it in raising millions of dollars for the poor and other humanitarian causes? What is the strength of the gospel? What is the one secret of the gospel? These and more questions are confidently and carefully explained by Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, in his scholarly yet Spirit-led letter to the believers in the first century Church of Rome. Please refresh your heart and your knowledge about what the gospel is really about! My prayer is that as a result, you will be quickened in your spirit to live out the gospel and share it with a sense of urgency in such a time as this.

A major part of God's calling upon my life is reaching the lost with His gospel of grace and love. God has given me a wonderful opportunity to serve Him in this area of ministry.
One of the greatest statements the Bible makes about prayer is that: "The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much" (James 5:16). The Lord Jesus taught that such prayer can be learned by the believer. No matter where you are, you can still join the School of Prayer to learn more about effectual prayer.
When our Lord Jesus came to earth, He preached the Word, not put on a show. He explained the truth, not entertained the crowds. He taught God's Word, not tickled itching ears. Here at Yesuli Ministries, we take the charge to preach the word seriously. We are committed to a verse by verse exposition of the Bible with passion, precision, power, and purpose. Our desire is to proclaim God's Word in a refreshing and relevant manner.
